Important Safety Instructions
WARNING
Important! Read and Follow All
Instructions AND KEEP FOR EASY
REFERENCE.
A green colored terminal, or wire connector marked Ground
�������
is provided within the control box. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, connect this terminal or connector to the
grounding terminal of the electric service or supply panel
with a continuous copper wire equivalent in size to the circuit
conductors supplying this equipment. In addition bonding lugs
are provided and marked Bonding
�������� Lugs������������������������
����������������������������
. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, connect the bonding lugs in accordance with
the local electric code.
At least two lugs marked Bonding
�������� Lugs���������������������
�������������������������
are provided on the
external surface of the supply terminal box. To reduce the
risk of electrical shock connect the local common binding
grid in the area of the hot tub to these terminals with an
insulated or bare copper conductor not smaller than No.6
AWG. Note:
��������������������������������
this is factory installed.
All field-installed metal components such as rails, ladders,
drains or other similar hardware within 10 ft /3m of the
hot tub shall be bonded to the equipment grounding bus
with copper conductors not smaller than #6AWG.
CAUTION: WIRING CONNECTED IN THIS BOX
MUST BE RATED AT 600V.
There are no user serviceable parts within the
management system. The high voltage can cause injury
or death. The hot tub must be hooked up to a Ground
Fault Circuit Interrupter (����������
G.F.C.I.��) by
���������������������������
a licensed electrician.
Use the test button on your G.F.C.I.�������������������������
���������������������������������
monthly to ensure it is
working properly.
Always make sure there is an adequate sanitizer level in
your hot tub before entering. Failure to do so may cause
skin irritations or illness. Use a test kit or test strips to
check prior to entry.
CAUTION: WATER TEMPERATURE IN EXCESS OF
100ºF/38ºC MAY BE INJURIOUS TO YOUR HEALTH.
AVOID PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO HOT WATER.
WATER TEMPERATURE MAY NEED TO BE DECREASED
FOR CHILDREN OR THE ELDERLY.
THE MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED TEMPERATURE OF
YOUR HOT TUB WATER IS 104ºF/40ºC.
To reduce the risk of drowning from hair and body
entrapment, install suction fitting(s) with a marked flow
rate that is not less than the flow rate marked on the
remote packaged unit. Note:
�����������������������������������
these are factory installed.
Do not operate the hot tub with any of the suction fitting
covers off. These covers prevent hair or objects from being
sucked into the plumbing. See figure 1.
figure 1
CAUTION: THE EQUIPMENT AND CONTROLS
SHALL BE LOCATED NOT LESS THAN 3.5 ft or 1m
HORIZONTALLY FROM THE HOT TUB.
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of
the body reaches a level of several degrees above normal
body temperature of 98.6ºF / 37ºC. The symptoms of
hyperthermia include drowsiness, lethargy and an increase
of internal temperature of the body.
The Effects:
• unawareness of impending hazard;
• failure to perceive heat;
• failure to recognize the need to exit the hot tub;
• physical inability to exit the hot tub;
• fetal damage in pregnant women; and
• Unconsciousness and danger of drowning.
WARNING
THE USE OF ALCOHOL OR DRUGS CAN
GREATLY INCREASE THE RISK OF FATAL
HYPERTHERMIA IN HOT TUBS.
Recommended time in water at 100ºF/38ºC is 15
minutes. Lower temperatures will permit longer bathing
times. Always check the temperature of the water before
entry with a thermometer.
personS with the following
conditions should consult their
Physician before using a hot tub: Diabetes, low
OR High blood pressure, PERSONS WITH INFECTIOUS
DISEASES, obesity, Heart disease, Circulatory
problems, Pregnant women or those taking
medication prescribed by their Physician. Do
not allow electrical devices such as portable
stereos, TV’s, hair dryers within 5 feet/1.5 meters
of the hot tub. Failure to do so could cause
electrocution resulting in injury or death
should the device fall in the water.
Beachcomber’s Safety Features
Molded Interior Steps
Beachcomber Hot Tubs are made with anti-slip checker plate
flooring, designed to make entry and exit safer. Always use
extreme caution during entry and exit, as hot tub surfaces are
slippery when wet.
Body Molded Handgrips
Use handgrips to prevent slipping, and to promote ease of
movement while entering, soaking and exiting the hot tub.
See figure 2.
figure 2
Heatshield Cover Locks
To prevent unwanted entry by children or unauthorized users,
use the cover lock assemblies that come as a standard
feature with each hot tub. Screw the female half on to the hot
tub cabinet with the stainless screws provided. See figure 3.
WARNING
figure 3
DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO
USE A HOT TUB WITHOUT ADULT
SUPERVISION. PREVENT UNAUTHORIZED CHILD ACCESS
TO AVOID THE RISK OF DROWNING.
WARNING
the Heatshield is strong enough
to withstand up to 2 feet of
snow. it is not designed to support the weight
of children, pets or adults. This will break the
foam inners and lead to premature failure of
the Heatshield.
WARNING
Starting up a Beachcomber Hot Tub
Once the Hybrid equipment is hooked up using the separate
instructions provided with the Hybrid Equipment box, and the
electrical connection is made by a qualified electrician, do the
following:
1. Check all union fittings on the Hybrid or Portable
equipment to ensure that they are tight. Hand-tightened
is sufficient. If leaking is noted at these fittings you may
need to tighten further or the gasket may be missing or
not seated properly. Unscrew the union and check.
2. Open all knife valves that are pointing up. See figure 4.
Leave all valves that are facing down in the closed
position. Fill the hot tub with water from a garden hose.
You can hang the hose over the edge of the hot tub or
hook it up to the drain/fill valve located down by the
pumps and fill from the bottom. It is recommended you
run your water through your garden hose to waste for a
few seconds before filling the hot tub.
3. Fill the hot tub to half way up the skimmer opening.
Note: If your hot tub is Hush Pump™ equipped your
level can be lowered to one third up the skimmer
opening. This will allow for more displacement if the hot
tub is subjected to use by more than the recommended
amount of people for that model. See Figure 5.
figure 5
WATER LINE
Over filling will not allow room
for displacement from people
entering the hot tub. Under filling could cause an
airlock in the system and could lead to pump and
heater damage not covered by your guarantee.
WARNING
ENSURE YOUR HOT TUB IS SITUATED ON
A LEVEL, HARD SURFACE CAPABLE OF
SUPPORTING BOTH THE WEIGHT OF THE HOT TUB, AND THE
WATER IN IT. SEE PAGE 33 FOR DETAILS.
WARNING
figure 4
4. Open the air bleed valve to release any air trapped in
the external plumbing (see equipment configuration
diagrams in this guide). There is one on the 300 and
500 series hot tubs, two on a 500 series with Hush
Pump™ and a standard 700 series and three on a 700
series with Hush Pump™. Once all air is bled from the
system, open any knife valves that are facing down.
5. With the air bled from the system, you can now turn on
the power at the GFCI. Once the control panel is on, use
the instructions on the following pages to complete your
start up. Refer to the instructions for the control panel
that matches your system.
Microfilter Removal and Maintenance
The Microfilter in the hot tub should be cleaned
approximately every two weeks or more if bather load
is high. Failure to clean the Microfilter can result in
cloudy water, odor and potential equipment damage due
to decreased flow. To remove the Microfilter, turn off
power to the hot tub at the GFCI breaker or at the power
disconnect.
Basic Hot Tub Configurations
Beachcomber manufactures hot tubs in two
configurations, one of which you now own.
The Hybrid Edition™ features the equipment outside of
the hot tub cavity under a safety step. See Figure 6.
The Original Portable features the equipment tucked inside
the hot tub cabinetry. A plank style step is available for this
style of construction. See your store for details.
See Figure 7.
Beachcomber Original Portable
A plank style step is available as an optional accessory.
figure 8
To remove, twist the trim ring to unlock it and remove with
the floating weir assembly, then lift out the basket and
then pull out the Microfilter. See figure 8. Remove any
hair or debris from the basket. Soak the Microfilter in a
cleaner such as Filter Pure overnight and then remove
and rinse thoroughly with a hose spray nozzle to remove
cleaner residue. It is recommended that you alternate
Microfilter cleaning each month with Filter Cure. It is also
advisable to have two Microfilters, to alternate while the
other is soaking in the cleaner.

HEATING MODES
Before turning on the power, make sure you have read the Start Up
instructions on page 6. When your hot tub power is first turned on
it will display a series of numbers identifying the software version
and the voltage input. It will then go into a 4 minute priming mode
indicated by a Pr on the LCD display. During priming mode the
Hush Pump will circulate the water through the filter and heating
system to allow the temperature to be read. If your hot tub is not
Hush Pump equipped, the jet pump will not turn on until the prime
mode times out or the
button is pressed to time out early.
During prime mode the jet pump can be turned on to make sure
they are fully primed and moving water in the hot tub. Do not
allow an unprimed jet pump to run for more than 10 seconds. If
the fill water temperature is below 44°F/ 7°C freeze protection
will activate all pumps immediately. While the circulation pump is
running the display will show a - - indicating current temperature
is not known. This will take two minutes. Once temperature is
known it will be displayed on the LCD.

DO NOT ENTER A HOT TUB WITHOUT
ADEQUATE SANITIZATION/DISINFECTION.
Always follow the label
instructions on WATER CARE CHEMICAL BOTTLES.
pH Level: ideal 7.2 - 7.8
This determines the acidity or alkalinity of your water, 7.0
being neutral. Water that is too acidic or too alkaline can
damage your hot tub; Test your pH every week or more
often if possible. Use pH Plus or pH Minus to adjust.
Total Alkalinity: ideal 100 - 120 ppm
Balance total alkalinity to stabilize your pH level, prevent
scaling and ensure your sanitizer works at peak efficiency.
Use Resist to increase the level or pH Minus to lower.
Adjust at initial fill and when refilling or topping up.
Calcium Hardness: IDEAL 150 - 200 ppm
Too high a level can cause cloudy water or scaling on the hot
tub surface and heating element. Too low a level can lead
to excess foaming in the water. Use Protect to increase the
level, use fresh water dilution to lower. Adjust at initial fill and
when refilling.
Other Important Conditioners
1. Metal and mineral sequestering product must be added
to keep any metals or minerals in the water in solution.
Use Eliminate #1 at initial fill.
2. Scale inhibitor prevents calcium buildup forming on
surfaces in the hot tub.
Use Eliminate Plus #2 at initial fill and weekly.
3. Beachcomber’s Clarifier agglomerates tiny particles in the
water making them easier to be picked up by the Microfilter.
It also provides lubrication to seals. Use Pure Blue at initial
fill and weekly.
4. Enzymes, a natural compound, eliminates scum and
organic contaminants.
Use Purezyme #3 at initial fill and weekly.

Hot Tub Care and Maintenance
Cleaning of the Acrylic Surface
The acrylic surface is very easy to maintain and care for. Use
Tub Clean to remove water level scum lines with warm water
and a damp cloth; wipe down, avoiding contact with the water
as Tub Clean can cause foaming.
Heatshield
As with any vinyl product that is exposed to the weather,
the better the care, the longer it will last. Use a mild dish
soap solution to remove dirt on the Heatshield and then
treat the vinyl by applying Cover All as per the label. Avoid
application in the hot sun.
Hot tub Cabinetry and Steps
The cabinet and step of your hot tub is made from a
synthetic plastic called Enviroskirt™. If dirty, simply wipe
down with a mild soap solution and rinse well. If your
hot tub cabinet is natural cedar and you want to keep it
looking new, use Beachcomber’s “Nu Wood Stain” Clear
once a year. If the cedar is weathered some, use Nu Wood
Natural or Twilight to bring back the color. Prior sanding
with 100 grit sandpaper may be necessary if weathering
is advanced.
Never use a cleaner that contains
ammonia. This could damage your
acrylic surface. DO NOT LEAVE the hot tub empty
and the Acrylic exposed to hot sun. Always put the
Heatshield back on the hot tub when it is not in use.
WARNING
20
Never use an abrasive cleaner
for cleaning the Enviroskirt™
cabinet as this will damage the finish.
WARNING
Plastic Components
The jets should be removed periodically and rinsed out to
remove debris from the spinning assemblies. If calcium
build-up is present, soak the parts in Filter Cure to loosen
the calcium and then scrub with a brush and rinse off. If a
lot of hair and debris is present on suction covers located
in the foot well, this can reduce water flow to the pumps.
Manually remove when the hot tub is empty or full.
Operation of Hot Tub Interior Features
Massage Inserts or Jets
The jets in a Beachcomber Hot Tub are known as EnergJets™ in three sizes; small, medium and large. They are
interchangeable within the same sizes. See figure 9.
Simply turn them counter clockwise until they click and
pop out. To re-install, line up the small protrusion on the
back of the face plate with the slot on the white WaterPort
and then turn clockwise and push in until they click in.
The jets can also be individually turned off/on. Simply turn
clockwise to turn off the water flow and counter clockwise
to turn on water flow.

position. On 300, and 500 series hot tubs the left air
control services the seat jets on the left of the hot tub and
jets in the foot well. The right air control services seat jets
on the right side of the hot tub. These air controls improve
the massage experience in your hot tub by adding more
turbulence to the water flow.
On the 300 and 500 series hot tubs with the Reflex Foot
Massage (RFM) option, the right air control services the RFM
jets when the water flow is diverted to them and the left air
control services all the seat jets. On the 700 series, the left air
control allows air flow to jets running off Massage Pump 1.
The right air control allows air flow to jets running off Massage
Pump 2. The right air control would also allow air flow to
the RFM jets if the diverter valve is diverting water flow from
Massage Pump 2 to the RFM jets. On all models more air is
drawn in when the jet pump is on high speed than when the
pump is on low speed.
figure 10
RFM Diverter Valve
The purpose of this valve is to divert water flow between
either the RFM foot jets or the seat jets. See figure 11. On 700
series hot tubs it diverts water flow from massage 2 pump
between the RFM foot jets or the seat jets on the left side of
the hot tub.
Always turn the pump to low speed or off before attempting
to turn the RFM Diverter Valve. Failure to do this could cause
the handle to break due to the high velocity of water moving
through the valve.
To turn on the neck jet, turn counter clockwise to turn on
and clockwise to turn off. If this jet does not turn off then
carefully pry the face plate off with a flat head screw driver,
and screw the internal portion back in by hand. Then pop
the face plate back on and turn it clockwise to tighten in the
internal portion.
Note: when the hot tub is not being used, the diverter valve
handle must be left in the center position. This ensures that
water in both zones is always in circulation during periods of
non use.
Air Control Valves
There are two air control valves located on either side of
the touch pad. See Figure 10. In the six o’clock position
they are off, meaning no air can be drawn to the jets. To
allow air to be drawn in, turn the lever to the 2 o’clock

Quintessential Surround Sound System™
(Optional)
If your hot tub is equipped with the QSS feature, simply lift
up the front cover, insert your CD or select a radio station,
then select a volume level between 28-34. If you purchased
the optional remote, see the remote control reference card
for operation instructions. The remote is water resistant but
not meant to be left in the water for storage. If you have the
optional QSS Plus™ System the CD player fader control should
be left in the zero position. For more in depth instruction on the
CD player, see your CD Player owners manual.
HOT TUB LIGHTING
All Beachcomber Hot Tubs come standard with either a 12
volt incandescent light or an EverLite™ LED light. To replace
either unit, drain your tub and locate your lens removal tool to
unscrew the light lens. Carefully pull out the light and replace
with a new one. Screw the lens back in until tight, but do not
over tighten.
WATERFALL (Optional)
If your hot tub is equipped with a waterfall feature, there is a
top side control valve to increase or decrease the amount of
water flow. The Waterfall feature receives its flow from the Hush
Pump™ or 2 speed circulation pump.
Turbo (Optional)
The purpose of the Turbo Option is to increase the amount of air
that comes out of the jets. The benefit is a dramatic increase in
the feel of the jet pressure and more turbulence in the water. If the
Turbo is activated and the air controls are closed, the air from the

Ozone Generator (Optional)
Your hot tub may be factory equipped with an ozonator
unit, or factory pre-plumbed to accept the installation of
an ozonator. Ozone gas is produced to oxidize organic
contaminants in the water. It is not designed to replace your
sanitizer.
The Ozonator is equipped with a small viewing window.
When ozone gas is produced, the window shows a purple
glow, best seen at night. This diminishes over time. When
no purple glow is seen during filtration cycles (not heating
cycles), the chip will require replacement. The chip is rated
at 9000 hours.
No user serviceable parts. Do
not attempt to service this or
any other part of your Beachcomber Hot Tub
equipment pak. Contact your local STORE for
service and/or replacement. Do not view the UV
bulb in operation. UV rays can cause irritation and/
or blindness.
WARNING
THE USE OF AN OZONATOR or
Cleartech UV unit IS NOT A
REPLACEMENT FOR A WATER SANITIZING PROGRAM.
FAILURE TO PROPERLY SANITIZE HOT TUB WATER CAN
CAUSE IRRITATION AND/OR DISEASE.
WARNING
ClearTech UV WATER CARE SYSTEM (Optional)
Your hot tub may be equipped with ClearTech. This unit
uses a specialized ultra violet light bulb which produces UV
light. Bacteria are destroyed as the water passes through
the tube and under this light. The UV bulb is rated at
15,000 hours. The glass sleeve covering the bulb should
be inspected and cleaned (if necessary) at each drain and
fill. For service or replacement, consult your Beachcomber
store.
Hush Pump™
The Hush Pump is a very quiet, low amperage, high flow
circulation and filtration pump that looks after the filter
and heating functions of your hot tub. It comes set from
the factory to operate 24 hours a day.
Draining Your Beachcomber Hot Tub
Change three to four times a year or more if bather load is
high. To calculate the change frequency, use the following
formula:
# Days = 1/3 (Volume in US Gallons)
Max # of daily bathers
Before draining, check the sanitizer level. It should not
be above 1.0 ppm, to ensure no harm is done to the
surrounding environment. If sanitizer level is high, use
Beachcomber’s Neutr-All as directed on the label.
1. Turn power off at the G.F.C.I. breaker or power
disconnect switch (do not use the standby feature).
2.Locate the black drain/fill valve found in behind the
door on a Portable model or under the step on the
Hybrid Edition.
See Figure 12. Remove the safety cap from the fitting
threaded into the valve.
3. Attach the female end of your garden hose and place
the other end at a level lower than the drain/fill valve to
ensure complete draining. To open, turn the outer part
of the drain/fill valve counter clockwise to open and start
the draining.
4. Draining time will vary from model to model.
5. Once the hot tub is drained, disconnect the garden
hose and close the valve if you are not going to fill the
hot tub through the valve. If you want to fill through
this valve, unscrew the threaded adapter and thread
in the male end of your garden hose, then attach the
female end to your tap and refill.
Vacation Instructions
If leaving your hot tub full and running while on
vacation for 3-5 days, do the following:
1. Check and adjust pH level if necessary.
2. Shock-treat the water to raise the sanitizer level. Leave
the hot tub Heatshield half open for 1 hour.
3.Lower the water temperature to the minimum setting
(optional).
4.Lock your Heatshield on the hot tub to maintain a safe
environment for pets or children. If you are in a high
wind area, install Hurricane Straps (available from your
local Beachcomber store) to secure the Heatshield to
your hot tub.
Upon returning do the following:
1. Check pH and sanitizer level and adjust if necessary.
If leaving for 5-14 days and no one can come by to
maintain the hot tub, do the following:
1.Lower the set temperature to 80ºF/26.5ºC. Sanitizers
may last longer in cooler water.
2. Check and adjust pH and Alkalinity level if necessary.
3. Use either a Beachcomber floating tablet dispenser
or a Holiday Tender tablet dispenser to automatically
dispense either Bromine Disc or Mini Disc in your
hot tub water to maintain water disinfection. Use
the low setting on these devices as the demand for
disinfectant will be low during this time.
figure 12
23
4. Lock the Heatshield and attach a Hurricane Strap in
high wind areas.
2. Return temperature setting to your desired level.
In the event of a prolonged power outage, first shut off
the power at the main panel. Close the knife valves (see
figure 4) to keep the hot water in the hot tub, and remove
the drain plugs or pull out one of the small braided hoses
on the front of the pumps to drain all the water from the
external plumbing lines and the pumps.
Winter Operation Information
Shutdown Procedures
All Beachcomber Hot Tubs have built in freeze protection
for their equipment. If your hot tub is not Hush Pump™
equipped, the freeze protection will activate the pump(s)
high speed for approximately 2 minutes if a temperature
of 50˚F/10˚C or below is detected at the heater housing. If
your hot tub is Hush Pump™ equipped, the only time freeze
protection will activate is if the hot tub is left in standby mode
long enough to allow water at the heater to reach 50˚F/10˚C
or if your hot tub is filled with water that is 50˚F/10˚C or
lower. There is also a small water line that runs from pump
to pump that assists in the freeze protection by increasing
circulation.
Beachcomber encourages the use of your hot tub year
round, but if you prefer not to use your hot tub for periods
longer than 14 days, you need to do a proper shut down.
Upon returning do the following:
1. Check pH and sanitizer level and adjust if necessary.
Winter Precautions
If your equipment is not working during freezing
temperatures you should first try to contact your local
Beachcomber store. Some stores have an emergency

place a small space heater or trouble light down by the
equipment. Position the heater or light so that it does
not melt or come in contact with plastic parts, to avoid
equipment damage. You can also block off the step or door
vent to keep in the heat but it must be removed once the
freezing weather is no longer present.
